Best Ice Cream in Town! Oct 26, 2010
Dairy Mart, a Salem institution, is located east of town on Route 50 on the south side of the road. This place has the BEST ice cream. They have a menu of sundaes, shakes (of every flavor imaginable it seems) and volcanoes (similar to the Dairy Queen’s Blizzard) with numerous choices available. Dairy Mart’s famous flavor is lemon. When I was a kid, it was hit or miss as to whether it would be the flavor of the day. But, it’s so popular that a few years ago, they decided to offer it everyday along with another flavor of the day. My favorites: pineapple, banana and black cherry. There is indoor seating, but the walk-up outside service is quite popular. There are a couple picnic tables outside to enjoy the ice cream treats. And, due to popular demand, they do have drive-thru service as well.
In addition to being THE place to get ice cream, Dairy Mart also has a mini-golf course, which provides some small town entertainment.
It is seasonal; they are closed from November to March.
